The Gallery at River Arts will open a special two-week exhibition of (the late) Dohrn Zachai’s private collection of paintings, drawings, sketchbooks and writing from her studio in Johnson.


From her roots in Jersey City, New Jersey in the 1930’s to her studio and home in Johnson, Vermont, Dohrn’s artistic talents spanned far and wide to include dance, music and composition, textiles, drawing and painting.
